Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27450268/Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green. You’re twelve years old. It’s a bright, clear morning. Summer nestles in close over the horizon, stirring the air into undulating blankets of flowing, shimmering strangeness. Sometimes when you look hard the shapes it makes are like streamers, or snakes, or coursing, grasping tongues of translucent fire. Beneath the ethereal flux, Lake Michigan stretches out, yawning in blues and greens, cool and shifting but strangely solid to you. Everything shifts. Everything changes. The sky paints such shapes. The dune beneath your back is at once soft and coarse, pooling around you, sand seeping and minute layers lifting as the breeze slowly – ever so slowly, ever so imperceptibly – moves the land further, further back. The lake is like wall set against the grinding bones of the Earth, a mirror in which the sky is only still, and the land is only a ghost. You’ll be back at school tomorrow, but now you’re here. It’s just you and the dunes. Just you and the roaring waves.The roar carries your name to you. >[ ] Get up and follow the call.>[ ] Shout back that you’re tired.>[ ] Just sit there. It doesn’t matter.

>[X] FollowMan, what does she want?You get up and stomp back inland, your moment of oneness with the universe thoroughly ruined. “John!” The voice repeats it, like a mantra. “John get your behind back here!” “I’m coming!” You shout back indignantly, trudging up the dunes. Mom’s SUV materializes as you crest one of the rolls of sand, lodged awkwardly into a jutting dune. She sits off to the side, in the shade, the broad-rimmed hat over her wiry, awkward shape lending the appearance of a flower wilting under the sun. She’s not the one calling to you, though. “Finally!” Joyce waves you over. She’s four years older than you. She’s so much taller than you, too. Her skin is tanned from all the running she does, and her eyes are the same bright, oceanic blue as yours. She gets her hair from your dad, though. “Come on, I put this thing way too far in. I can’t get it out the sand. Gonna need a little help.” She grips the front of the vehicle and grins. >[ ] “You doofus, you know you don’t need my help.”>[ ] You know what this is.

>[X] “You doofus, you know you don’t need my help.”>[X] You know what this is. Grip the back of the car.“You doofus, you know you don’t need my help.” Still, you smile anyway as you make your way around the mired vehicle.“Alala. Such pointed words.” She snickers and braces herself deep in the sand, breathing in and out quickly, like a weightlifter getting ready to make the champion ship heave. You affix your hands to the back of the car and hold on. Her head cranes out to the side, grinning at you. “You ready, buddy?” “Yeah.” She gunts, and lifts… and lifts the entire SUV, you with it, straight out of the sand. You dangle by your arms and laugh as she carries it forward with slow, careful steps, very slightly swinging it from side to side. It’s like the ebb and flow of the tide, but in the air. Eventually, she sets it down again, and you lift your legs so as to make sure than nothing gets caught. You sister can be pretty cool sometimes.>[ ] Run back to the beach with your sister.>[ ] Sit with your mother.

>[X] Run back to the beach with your sister.“Come on.” Joyce waltzes around the car, blowing a gust of imaginary smoke from her bicipital ‘guns’. “Race you to the water.” “That’s not even slightly fair.” You state.But you bolt off anyway, hoping to get a head start. It doesn’t last, and she soon catches up, running beside you in huge, exaggerated bounds. The wind rushes over and under and through you, your footfalls blasting you with little gusts of sand. The world bellows so hard in your ears. You bellow back, because clearly that will make you faster.She keeps pace with you till you reach the final dune, and then clears most of the beach in one gigantic, ridiculous leap. Well you certainly weren’t expecting that. You trail after her.“Nice try, kid. But not nice enough.” >[ ] “Yes this outcome was such a surprise.”>[ ] “Whatever!

>[X] “Yes this outcome was such a surprise.”>[X] BRAAAAT.“Yes, this outcome was such a surprise.” You mumble. Stupid awesome superpowers. “Alala, is a hint of that bitterness I detect?” She furrows her brow and cocks back her neck in faux-aloofness, grinning broadly. Sometimes you think that grin is in real danger of splitting open her face. “I think it is.” “No it’s not!” You counter. “It doesn’t even matter ‘cause one day I’ll have my OWN powers! AND I’ll be a million times faster an’ stronger than you! An’ I’ll shoot lasers! And fly!” “Oh, really?” Her grin morphs into a sly smile and she leans down. “Would that be cool? Flying? Wouldn’t you rather have something like…” she waves her arms as if to catch ideas as they rush by on the wind “…intangibility? Or invisibility?” “Nope.” You reply. “Flying is the best. You could go anywhere.” “Yeah”– She grabs you by the waist –“I see your point. Welp, you’ve convinced me, kiddo.”“Hey hey what are you”– “Get ready to fly!” You remember feeling like you’d never come down. The water seemed so far away. You flew, and flew, and flew… hurtling into the beyond. The blue stretched out above and below and out into infinity. But you did come down, eventually.>(cont)

You’re John James Green.You’re thirteen. Your sister is holding your hand. The blue has changed. It’s sick and sterile now, and enclosing. You smell nothing but freshener and antiseptics. Your sister is not grinning. She’s nodding and nodding and nodding, like it’s some kind of nervous twitch. Barely-visible, glimmering streaks of wetness climb up her cheeks. You realize you’re doing the same thing, the same nodding thing, the same wet-eye thing, and you shake yourself out of it.You stare at the door beyond. It looms like a great, storm-blue thundercloud. Like a tsunami. Like all the solidity in the world rushing at you.“Do you understand?” Says the doctor.No. No, you don’t, the words didn’t mean anything. You were soaked up into the haze of the moment, of the place. But he’s not talking to you; he’s talking to your sister. And she just nods.>[ ] “No. I don’t understand.” >[ ] Push by.

To this day, his face remains a chaotic infestation of rot and soiled flesh. This is the face of the underworld. The face of becoming and unbecoming, and beckoning, and fading. “It’s like a tiny blood clot in your mother’s brain. Around...” he pauses, and makes a tiny circle between his forefinger and thumb “…around this big. Like a small grape. Normally we’d have caught it earlier, but with her pre-existing conditions, the headaches didn’t seem out of the ordinary.”Your throat is a pit. Your stomach is nothingness, the space behind your eyes is nothingness. “We can attempt to…” His voice fades out into the sterile beyondness of the hospital.

Time begins to break here. “Well, we can attempt surgery, but at this stage…” There is a hole in space between his breaths here. Empty, vast, inevitable. It opens wide, teeth of grinding nothingness ripping back the curtains of everything. The orderlies that shuffle by are disintegrating, churning meat, flittering away into the timeless black. There’s just you and your sister and the huge, blue door, standing sentinel at the edge of Creation. “…well, either way, the choice is hers.” You don’t remember when exactly he left. But he did, his grey, paralytic maw receding, creeping back into the sterile dark. Your sister, the last chunk of reality, squeezes your hand.You reach for the doorknob. It’s hot. It burns.>[ ] Turn it anyway. >[ ] Run. The fire is coming.

>[X] Turn it anyway. You grasp the doorknob. It sears your flesh, scattering burns, scales, somethings, across your hand. You turn it.You feel the fire racing toward you. It circles, like a firebird, like a phoenix, like a comet-vulture waiting in the slips and cracks of the atmosphere. Waiting, watching. You and your sister step tentatively in. She’s squeezing your hand so tight. Her grip isn’t strong, though – it flutters, shaking, none of the Herculean might you’re used to in it. All the strength was cried out of her in the waiting room. Yes, you remember that very well. Your mother lies against the dank nothingness like a queen laid to rest. The machines assemble around her like courtiers vying for recognition, the tubes and wires like holy flowers draped across her flesh. Like something from a movie, like something undead, she raises her head – ever so slowly – to look at you. She smiles and waves weakly. Your burnt hand is in hers. You’re sitting beside her. Her finger slowly circles the back of your hand, hypnotic and comforting. You’re just glad to see her talking to your sister. She turns to you. “You’ll be alright, James. You’re not just anyone.” Not just anyone. Not just any homeless loser. Not just any tramp. Not just -You look at her.

She’s still talking to your mother, to your cinder, your firestorm.“Sis, we have to go now!” The blaze licks at your back. Sweat materializes across you, smoke belching up into your lungs. “Sis! Sis! Joyce!” You wrap your arms around her. And you feel hers around yours. You feel her lift you up, her form enclosing around you protectively. You’re John James Green. You’re fourteen. Your sister runs along the grass, along the dunes, along the sand. You feel the world lurch under you with every bound. The heat of the house still clings to you, its glow eclipsing the black of the night, like a great, red halo. She breaths heavily, raggedly. You wince. Your shoulder hurts so much. You can’t stop crying, it hurts to bad. Why did they do that? Why would you do tha–A sound like a giant rattling its teeth scatters over the beach. Your sister ducks and tumbles down the closest dune, her arms tightening around you, her grasping you close. She pulls herself up. She begins to pull herself up. Her breath is a rasping, clattering thunderstorm. Her blood soaks your shirt, your hair, your face. In the distance the fire roars.>[ ] “Get up, get up, get up get up…”>[ ] Drag her up.

>>27504989Oh, agreed. I'm not trying to push a theory here (wasn't intending to do more than ask about the family history until Anon asked "why?") just get more information after Crusty used the firebird imagery. Which, as you say, could simply have been a flourish and not a hint. My expectation before that line was that the fire would either turn out to be a sentinel attack or an attempt by our neighbors to "kill the mutie scum!" Obviously learning that our sister was also a mutant shifts the odds towards sentinel involvement.

Its seven-years-old and getting kicked off the basketball team. It’s shame. It’s getting the low scores. It’s lying and being found out about it. It’s letting someone down. “I’m sorry.” You never understood this. She tried her best. “It’s okay.” You rasp out. Smoke in your lungs, choking, black. “It’s…” You loop your arms under hers and pull her. You drag her with you. You drag the both of you toward the water, toward the lake, the first, crystalline blue that was perfect and infinite. You don’t know why, but everything will be better if you make it to the water. The lake was the only thing that didn’t change. The still, clear drop stranded in the rush of time. Your stomach drops as you hear the vans roll to a stop behind you. Again. Again, again, again. You hear the boots. The clicks.

It spills out over her, bursting from her – you don’t know, from her pores? From everywhere, from seemingly nothing. It clothes her in in pure, unspoiled white. Like porcelain. Someone fires. Someone. The bullets tap-dance over her shell and arc out into the night. She grabs him by the neck and, and – she bursts is head open. Like a balloon.Like a grape. Like an aneurysm. She screams silently. Her mouth works the rage and the hate but nothing comes out. Her hands are around the closest one and suddenly he is nothing, just spillage, splitting open and spraying stuff you didn’t know humans had, stuff you never considered – all his intestinal juices and phlegm and stomach paddings and shit. The charges through them – literally, she literally charges through them, tearing them apart – and burrows her arms into one of the vans, hurling it over her head. It spins like space junk against the red-black night, crashing down as a crumpled mess. There are more at the top of the dunes. There’s so many of them. They scream and shout and – and they say things that angels should be saying. She watches them draw that long, dark cylinder. You see her face, frozen in that last expression of raw failure. She strides towards you and picks you up. You think she’s going to run, but she doesn’t. She sways. She heaves. You realize what’s happening and you scream for her to stop but it’s too late. She throws you further than she’s ever thrown you before. In the air, just for a moment, you glimpse her, and you see the rocket cut its scar-white trail across the beach, just before her fist cuts its flight short. And there is a thunder like you’ve never known.

I think the point (aside from some backstory info-droppery) is about thinking a little more about the possible ramifications of overdoing things and over relying on our abilities. If our body/mind/mutation can take it, go for it, if not then know that there isn't always going to be a safety net for you to fall on. That kind of thing.

You’re not exactly sure why – you don’t know what to do here, or what the proper etiquette is for accidentally electrifying someone so hard that you actually peel some flesh off their bones. Laura’s hand jolts out, pressing against your chest, keeping you back for a moment, before she gradually lowers it. “I am… I’m so fucking sorry. I wasn’t here, exactly.” “Hkk. Hakk. Khhk.” She makes a few experimental, meaty sounds with her throat, wheezing occasionally. Must be the numbness of electrification interfering with breathing. A chill races down your spine and you wonder if that could actually kill her, but you notice, to all the relief you are possibly capable of, that she’s already healing. The other two stare at you.

For all they know Creeper could be about to barge through the door and cut everyone’s dicks off, then shake your hand and give you a hearty (greasy) pat on the back.You glance at the door. Nope, nothing. Cool. No jinx. Laura stays tense, as if she could spring away at any time. She stares at you in expectant silence. “Right then…” Once upon a time, JJ Green was an all-American boy on an all-American farm out in Michigan. The dragons attacked but his ogre sister beat them up and he decided to go travelling for a while the end. Urgh. “Well, as the accent may suggest, I’m not from NY…” It takes a while. You halt at bits and, where you can, you gloss over certain stuff. But eventually you’re done, and an immense weight seeps from your chest. “Whoa.” Is the first response, courtesy of Noriko. She’s looking a lot better, you note.Laura is looking at her feet, seemingly thinking about something. >Your excellent roll has greatly mitigated a potentially catastrophic loss of Relationship!>[ ] “How’d I get here anyway?

An extra little stab of guilt pangs at you. “I’m… really sorry, Laura. About that… thing.” She shakes her head. “No, I may have done something similar, had the roles been reversed.” She looks away for a moment, as if contemplating something, and then adds: “You can make it up to me.”You chuckle. Well, alright. Still, something’s nagging at… at… you…“Hey… you sure I was in the corridor when you found me?” She nods. “Oh. Okay.” Huh. You… you could’ve sworn you crashed all over that furniture store. You remember being on your feet, then on your knees, then on your back, then nothing. Maybe you’re just kinda muddled up?

You bolt to your feet and, in a moment of confounded urgency, try to grab around for all the shit that’s pretty much on you. Oh. “Uh, look, guys, I gotta go. Uh…” You pad down your jeans, withdrawing all but $15 and placing it on the floor beside Laura. “I worked stuff out with Creeper, kind of, and yeah, I’ve been thinking that it’s safer to keep most of our cash here. Anyway… gottago.” You run like the wind. >Hunger Level: 5Urgh, you run like a gaseous, smoggy wind. Your tummy huuuurts. Luckily, you just about miss most of the morning rush and find yourself at those glorious Bugle gates just shy of 6:30. You’re a little later than you should be, but you’ve got plenty of time to find your spot. You rush in. Vanessa’s back and she quickly points you on your way to the usual side-corridor nearby the presses. As you open the door you very nearly smack straight into a dude, but – with poise you honestly can’t help but be a little dumbstruck by – a he twists around you, bending under your arm. With a stack of files clasped against his chest. He shoots you an almost frightened, kinda weirdly apologetic look, kinda a deer + headlights thing, and – and hey, it’s Parker.And he has a bruise the size of Kansas all over his left eye. >[ ] “Whoa, Parker, that was some slick movement there.”>[ ] “Hey, man, what happened to your face?” >[ ] Just say hi and wave him off.

Mr… lucky.” In the awkward silence that follows you clear your throat and shift a little, trying to keep your eyes off the incredibly, ridiculously distracting bruise cluttering up one side of his face. “Uh, you alright, by the way?” He shoots you a puzzled look. “Your face, man.

Ok man?” He smiles, this time more openly. “Yeah. Thanks for caring, anyway.” You part ways – he heads up into the Bugle proper, while you pick up your stack and head out. You make it to your spot at 7:05, a little later than you’d generally like, but whatever. As usual, you’re at the entrance to an underground station, but as long as you don’t actually set foot on the premises you shouldn’t be having any trouble. You soon lose yourself to the blank drudgery of handing out papers.>Roll a D20 for speed

>>27509039WhatsitcalledFate point.We are not being late for the robbery dammit!
>>27509064Whoops, wrong dice.Also, Karma point.
>>27509039voting to use a karma point. we can't lose time we have crap to do today.
>>27509028Hey crusty do you remeber my question/>>27504916>>27504874>>27504569
why not? we got 3karma point time
fuck your Karma, this could be AMUSING!
>>27509135Could you not be an autist for just a part of a day, anon?Please?For fuck's sakes he's even said he'd get to it after the thread. If you could stop being so cripplingly assburgers maybe you would've noticed.
>>27509039Fucking gold. You can't actually botch this in some insane way, as it's not a roll with a DC... but you can perform very slowly.>>27509135I do. I may not be able to answer it all in this thread, as I'm pressed for time, but if I can't I'll answer it at the end of the next one.
>>27509151Being so awful at newspapering that we're late for our robbery appointment would not be.
>>27509153There wan an emergency and i was helping to remind him just in case he forgot anon, plus the thread is ending on a cliff hanger so we have maybe two or three more post from crusty.
>>27509135He probably removers but given its something like 3am where he is I'm guessing it'll be tabled for today.
>>27509184So no karma point?
>>27509187Shush now, anon, no more words from you. Only silence.Please don't try to justify or excuse your behavior by using someone else's circumstances.
>>27509153lel>>27509135Fuck you, I'll answer this shit so you'll stop asking:>Pheromone Manipulation Lvl1Bitch! Dis be yo' stank glands. Yous can mak yo' self stank somethin' awesome. You can stank it up so hard people be all like "hell naw, what is dat stank?" and you can manipulate their feelin' through their nose.>Envenomed Touch Lvl1Bitches be drippin' poison!>Paralytic Touch Lvl1 Freeze tag. We're already taser-hands-man, which is *like* freeze tag, but more foaming at the mouth and killing people with pacemakers.>Vampiric Touch Lvl1Doesn't make you sparkle.Also, was explained in great detail a few threads ago.>Claws & Fangs Lvl1If you need this explained, you're a moron.
>>27509184Thanks, there is no rush.
>>27509206You know what? I'll let you spend karma if you want. But know that this is a percentile roll. You're not gonna be stuck there for ten hours due to your 1. A 2 or a 3 would get you the same result as what you've got.All for karma?
>>27509233No, in that case.
>>27509212Eh its part of my personality to ask questions a lot.>>27509225I had a good chuckle thanks anon.
>>27509233Will we be late for the meeting with the creeper?
>>27509248I would again like to request that you stop hiding and just admit to your diagnosis. What you've been doing isn't "questioning," it's more like "harassment."pls stahp
>>27509248Actually, not only has Vampiric Touch been explained in past threads, so has Pheromone Manipulation.The other three are pretty self explanitory.
>>27509265Almost certainly not.
>>27509233Damn, we aren't going to get a chance to swing by the hide out before the job.
>>27509294I just wanted to know the levels is all since i have pretty bad memory.
>>27509265The creeper will find us when it's go time (if we aren't at the meeting point). Not seeing how we can be late.
>>27509317Well okay then.No need for fate pointan.Kimura shows up to buy a paper, sprits us with trigger scent.
>>27509321We operate on comic book time, not real life time.Unless it's plot relevant to not have enough time, there's always plenty of time.
>>27509337Well, if you make a pastebin please share it.
>>27509346We set up a meeting point and time.The only time he'll come find us personally is if he knows where we are, which he doesn't, and if he feels like blowing our brains out, which he will if we fail to show.
well then, working on the hope it'll just take a long while and something bad won't happen, what do we want to do before the mission?
>>27509411get something to eat
>>27509427He is not a telepath.
>>27509431I doubt we will enough time to do much.
>>27509453Not without the Jack anyway. But in all seriousness, we know one ability of the Creeper's. He probably has more if he's made it that high up the job hierarchy.
>>27509504Or he's monofocused so he's good at his job.
>1This isn’t so bad. It’s kinda relaxing, in a mind-numbingly boring way. Last time it only took you like an hour to get read of your entire stack, and then you were free to go about your merry hobo way, your pockets a full $60 thicker. You start kinda slow, with the morning crowd being kinda thinner than usual, but there’ll be a rush of commuters soon enough.After six hours of waiting for that second surge you no longer believe in hope, or love, or wonder. You are a machine, a paper-handing, dead-to-the-world machine. Beep boop. You hand out your last paper and 13:26 and slither off onto the sidewalk to rest your battered soul. Sweet Jesus, Yahweh, Zeus, Quetzalcoatl, anyone – right now you’ll pretty much devote your life to the worship of any god that can guarantee the events of today to be ones never, ever repeated. You sigh heavily. This probably isn’t even going to be the low mark for today.No, that’s going to come later. At it’s not gonna be pretty.>Hunger Level: 6>Incidentally, we haven’t had a Random Event roll in ages!>ROLL A D20 MOTHERFUCKERS FIRST ROLL COUNTS---------------------------------------------------------------- >THREAD 10: END>Congratulations!

>>27509544He's management. Self-concealment is useful as hell, but there are better abilities to maximize efficacy in that roll. We know he can pull Jedi mind tricks, I'm just saying (with admittedly a bit of hyperbole) we shouldn't expect the Creeper not to have an ace in the hole, or his hiding abilities to be a specific application of a broader skill set.
>>27509573>>27509562What'd we get, Crusty
>>27509573Frank fucking castle. Goddamnit all!
>>27509658good sick him on creeper and Fisk make the world a better place.

Anyhow, abilities. Some of the descriptions that have been asked after are in previous threads. At another time I'd be totally fine with dredging them up, but I really am tired, so I'm just addressing those that haven't been discussed before:>Envenomed Touch Lvl1Level 1: You essentially have a scorpion sting/spider bite on your hand. It won't kill unless applied liberally, but it will cause serious pain and encumberance.Level 2: Your venom is now longer lasting and has more pronounced effects.Level 3: Your venom can be lethal, and can be lethal relatively quickly. Your body naturally processes toxins and poisons and uses them to supplement your touch.Level 4: Your venom is a cocktail of radioactivity, natural and unnatural virii, and acidic/toxic substances that will find a chink in almost any kind of biology.Level 5: You can project your 'venom field' over a very very short distance.>Claws & Fangs Lvl1Level 1: Small claws/fangs.Level 2: Large claws/fangs.Level 3: Sharper claws/fangs.Level 4: Harder claws that you can shoot.Level 5: Claws that can be shot more often and can 'conduit' for other abilities.
>>27509562Wait i missed a few threads, what happened since we meant whither
>>27509734Go read the archives.
>>27509729One thing I was curious about: would medium armor still encumber agility and stealth while turned off?
>>27509637Hah. What's the point of leaving you on a cliffhanger if I tell you?>>27509734Quite... a lot. You found his friend, you made a deal with Creeper, and are preparing to steal from the infamous and legendary Mister Negative.
>>27509734>Wait i missed a few threads, what happened since we meant whitherWe met Noriko/Surge, we met Kimura (didn't go well), we got given a mission by Creeper (go steal some stuff from Mr. Negative) to make up for Surge and Wither's shit. Laura told us she was a soulless killing machine manufactured by the gubmint.
>>27509803I hope you mix up the random encounter chart a little bit so it's a surprise. Wouldn't want any enterprising anons to read the archives.
>>27509876Yeah, I change it around after each roll. I'll still totally admit to a disproportionate ratio of New Mutants to not-New Mutants stuff, though.Thread archived, by the by.
>>27509913will this be it for tonight?
>>27509562>You might be retarded!Might be?
>>27509562>You spent like six hours handing out papers! Wow! You might be retarded!meh, printed media is dying.
>>27509921For the questing, yeah.I'll be here for... 'bout ten minutes, give or take, if anyone has anything they wanna ask.
>>27510076When do we get phasing?
>>27510076Can we just get gay with anole already?
>>27510076Laura mentioned that we have to make up for frying her throat what does she have in mind?
>>27510119All in due time. One day, you may have your dream of gay mutant lizards.And I'm sure the phasebros will capture the dream too. Eventually.
>>27510195she wants us to feed her.
>>27510210Is there any restrictions on mutants leaving US borders?
>>27510210yeah gay fucking lizards
>>27510195Clearly she wants to go see Rush (go see Rush).>>27510235Yes. It's completely restricted. You can only leave US soil if you agree to work for SHIELD under permanent and non-negotiable contract.
>>27510289Can you tell us anything about mutant laws in other countries?
>>27510312All you need to know is that you're a Electric Lizard Elf Hobo. Your kind is always welcome in Paris.
>>27510312They vary quite a bit. China is even more aggressive about it, whereas Russia has this weird mix of restrictions and freedoms that kind of amount to "Eh... whatever works." The EU is a mixed bag, as is South America. While many other countries in the Americas have a few laws kinda like those the US has, they don't have the infrastructure, technology, or reliable enough manpower to enforce them, and they've become those forgotten kind of laws that never come up in any practical sense.Lots of mutants jump the border, and the US comes down hard on this. As while the public and the government shits on them, they could be a useful resource in someone else's hands. As it stands, much of Mexico's criminal infrastructure and power base has been steadily invaded and taken over by foreign mutants fleeing to the country.
>>27510365 A gay electric lizard elf hobo we are god among men in france
>>27510442why is jj gay?
>>27510493What are you a homophobe
>>27510493Because we keep killing the women that get close to us, well, watching them get killed anyway.
>>27510511Why are you an omniphobe? Fuck all the binaries man.
Rolled 11>>27510533Oh....so killing women or watching them die makes JJ gay?
>>27510562>Being this xenophobecome on all i want is a horsecock>>27510565Or just gives him a weird fetish
>>27510584Oh hey /d/ i didn't see you come in
>>27510584I'm pretty sure that's strength level 4, which we can't get to as it's a tertiary power.
>>27510289>Clearly she wants to go see Rush (go see Rush).What?
>>27510411Guys. I think I have an idea for what to do once we're strong enough to escape New York with the gang.
Look I'm not one for profiling but we are slowly turning into a blue dragon man. And what are dragons known for stealing? Princesess and virginal maidens. I'm not saying that doesn't mean we couldn't be gay. Maybe dragons were stealing young women to give them fashion tips and help decorate their caves.......but it's more likely they were after sweet sweet princess nookie.
>>27510871>I'm not saying that doesn't mean we couldn't be gay. Maybe dragons were stealing young women to give them fashion tips and help decorate their caves.Lets fucking do it
>>27510782it's a movie, fagboy.Ron Howard, Chris Hemsworth, some other dude I forget. Formula 1.
>>27510782either he's talking about the terribad new ron howard movie or he thinks Laura want's to go see the canadian rock band RUSH live. I hope its the second one.
>>27510871man, I gotta shoot down the nookie theory, because, well, they're *still* virginal maidens after good sir whoeverthefuck decapitates the giant lizard and hauls their dainty tookus back to some castle somewhere.
>>27510922Really? I was thinking the band actually. I think Laura would be a fan of Neil Peart.
>>27510954We have a castle, it is a garage can on 87th and 9th
>>27510925clearly it's the second.It's in her blood.
>>27510954What about all the maidens that came before the last knight showed up?
>>27510954They're still virginal when they get saved BECAUSE dude shows up with a sword. Beheading is severe coitus interuptus.
>>27510985You. I like you.
>>27510984Odd numbers run north-south, yo. You need an odd and an even street number for it to make sense.
>>27510995Man, you gotta hate those fucking muders. What's their problem with interracial marriage anyway.
>>27511035Dude i don't know about new york i live in cincinatti
>>27511067it's not rocket science, g, it's codified at the federal level as well. Haven't you ever noticed all north-south highways are odd numbers and all east-west highways are even ones?8, 805 (405 in LA metro), 15, the 10, etc. All highways in California. 8 and the 10 run east-west and the 5 and 15 run north-south with occasional splits like the 805 and the 405. You can thank Eisenhower for a functioning interstate system.
